The school year is just around the corner! This is the perfect time for parents to make sure that their children have a healthy smile as a back-to-school essential. Many schools require a back-to-school dental exam, so it is a good time to schedule one of your child’s regular visits.
At Jamison Innovative Dentistry, our doctors specialize in care for adults and children–the perfect office to take care of all your needs in one office.
Our doctors will check that your child’s teeth are lining up correctly and that the bite is in good shape, in addition to the overall health of the teeth and gums. The exam is accompanied by a professional cleaning to remove cavity-causing bacteria and help keep gum tissue healthy.
Based on the child’s overall dental health, our dentists may recommend fluoride or sealants during your visit. Fluoride is a preventative treatment that protects tooth enamel and helps with proper tooth development.
Sealants are another way to prevent cavities, although they are no substitute for brushing and flossing. A sealant is a thin, protective coating that works to keep cavity-causing bacteria and pieces of food from settling into the small surfaces that your child’s toothbrush cannot reach.
Parents: we can also help you at your dental appointment! Our dentists have placed many crowns and implants. You can always ask any questions regarding gum health or aesthetic procedures.
